Listen little spammer. Global climate change has happened for billions of years. The only reason that humans are noticing it now because we're speeding up the process and it could have irreparable changes on the planet. So you just believe what you want to, even though it could be the truth. This just reminds me of the Topix Cold War. There is evidence of climate change in Earth's history and prehistory.http://www.bbc.com/ future/story/20130424-a-vision -of-our-future-climate

Do you care to learn posting links instead of namecalling?

Have you looked at my links? Perhaps we agree but you are perhaps too windup, LOL.

We all agree, but some of us are out there doing something constructive about it...

What are you doing?

If people like you stopped blabbing, there would be a 50% reduction in global warming.

Hey what are you doing other than "blabbing?"

Stop fighting, we all just agree that climate change exists, even though we may have different views on it.

Views, NO!

The science says the modern global warming is manmade [ called AGW]; ensuing climate change is an effect of AGW along with sealevel rise, floods, storms, droughts, migrations, and more.

http://www.skepticalscience.com/climate-chang...

In summary the past reveals our climate is sensitive to small changes in heat.

What does that mean for today? Over the past 150 years greenhouse gas levels have increased 40 percent mainly from burning of fossil fuels. This additional "forcing" is warming the planet more than it has in thousands of years. From Earth's history, we know that positive feedbacks will amplify this additional warming.

The Earth's climate has changed in the past and ice cores and other measures tell us why. Based on this knowledge, and other types of evidence we know the human emissions of greenhouse gases are warming the climate.

The 'climate changed naturally in the past' argument is a logical fallacy known as non sequitur, in which the conclusion doesn't follow from the arguments. It's equivalent to seeing a dead body with a knife sticking out the back, then arguing the death must be natural because people died naturally in the past. It fails to even consider the available evidence.

And you fail to see the obvious proof that the human race is just speeding up climate change. Its happened for billions of years. The Ice Age, the Permian Desert. They all will happen again. It's all just a natural cycle.

Go back to elementary school and ask your teacher if man-made is called natural.

Incredible.. get out of here.

CO2 has caused an accumulation of heat in our climate. The radiative forcing from CO2 is known with high understanding and confirmed by empirical observations. The climate response to this heat build-up is determined by climate sensitivity.

Ironically, when skeptics cite past climate change, they're in fact invoking evidence for strong climate sensitivity and net positive feedback. Higher climate sensitivity means a larger climate response to CO2 forcing. Past climate change actually provides evidence that humans can affect climate now.

Yeah, with you all the way... But I ask again what are you doing about it constructively?
...and I don't mean like turning your hearing down a degree or two.

Yes i also feel that our planet getting warm day by day. The planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate since the dinosaurs went extinct. But what might be even more troubling for humans, plants and animals is the speed of the change. There was a news few months ago about The present cooling is happening at a much faster rate than any climate scientist had predicted. Also alarmist predictions, such as rising sea levels, worse hurricanes, doomed ski industries and lack of snow for UK children have all failed miserably. The latest data from across the globe shows that the planet is changing faster than expected. More sea ice around the Arctic Ocean is disappearing than had been forecast. Regions of permafrost across Alaska and Siberia are spewing out more methane, the potent greenhouse gas, than models had predicted.
